Paul Pogba 'leaves Man Utd WhatsApp group and tells teammates he's leaving'
The Frenchman has reportedly said his goodbyes
Paul Pogba has reportedly played his last match for Manchester United and has sent a final message to the squad group chat on WhatsApp.
As reported by Mirror Football, the Frenchman looks set to leave Old Trafford in the summer when his contract expires, and he has already told his teammates that he is moving on. The report adds that Pogba has even left the WhatsApp player group the squad uses to communicate with each other.

Interim manager Ralf Rangnick confirmed that the former Juventus man is out for the rest of the season after picking up an injury early on in the 4-0 defeat at Liverpool last week. Given that the 29-year-old is not expected to sign a contract extension, he is likely to leave United as a free agent at the end of the campaign.
Pogba - who rejoined United from Juventus in 2016 - is reportedly a target for Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain, with the player's agent, Mino Raiola, often teasing the prospect of the midfielder leaving Old Trafford throughout his time in Manchester.
The World Cup winner's relationship with United's supporters has soured in recent months and Pogba even sarcastically cupped his hand to his ear as he walked off the pitch to boos following the Red Devils' 3-2 win over Norwich earlier this month.
Pogba's underwhelming campaign
United have gone trophyless since winning the Europa League and Carabao Cup in 2017 and have not won the Premier League since 2013.
Pogba has made 27 appearances this season - registering one goal and nine assists - but has missed several games through injury.
